The new iPad is hot, I don’t just mean 3 million sold during opening weekend hot, but literally hot.
How hot? According to consumer reports it can reach a not so blistering 116 degrees Fahrenheit.
Despite the 13 degree heat bump while playing games, Apple says that this is well within their thermal specifications, which is a nice way of saying they are OK with a hotter iPad.
Why wouldn’t they be? Apps can only go so far. Siri can’t help you fake a fever or evade an angry heat seeking creäture, but your hot new iPad can.
